"Guarded" is back from its trip to the art gallery and is finally ready for a new home (though it is certainly welcome on my wall :D). I recorded the making-of ages ago, for your pleasure.
This painting is based on a story about taking my cat to the vet; he is so aggressively terrified of everyone, that even when he is on the brink of death, he fights so hard to keep everyone away. He will scream and spit, even at those who are trying to save his life. He is well guarded. Many of us are well guarded in the hope of avoiding pain and emotional hurt. We sometimes shut the world out, even when we need help the most.
"Guarded" is available in the shop!
Hello! I'm Melissa, and here you'll find some behind-the-scenes footage of an artful life. Won't you join me?
